It's gone now. Are you sure that wasn't a copyright renewal for the silent movie?

The renewal says it's for the 10-Nov-39 film.

The 1927 silent movie is PD. The lost sound remake ("The Cat Creeps") and the Bob Hope 1939 version were both renewed and remain in copyright. The 1970s version is also copyrighted.

The underlying play is in the public domain because it was published prior to 1923.
